Almost three years ago, James Franco optioned the rights to Greg Sestero‘s book The Disaster Artist, which the actor wrote about the experience of making The Room. The Room, of course, is director/writer/star Tommy Wiseau‘s cult midnight classic, a movie made with significantly more passion than skill. While we were hoping to see Franco’s film and Zeroville out last year, Franco’s behind-the-scenes look at The Room is debuting next month at South by Southwest.
Before The Disaster Artist premieres, there’s a new pic of Franco brothers from the film. Below, check out The Disaster Artist photo.

Over a month ago, some surprising casting news revealed that Sharon Stone was slated to have what she called a “wee part” in a future Marvel Studios title. Her wording had plenty (including ourselves) guessing that she would be taking a role in Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to last year’s franchise starter starring Paul Rudd. More specifically, we thought it would be a good idea for her to play Janet Van Dyne, the original iteration of The Wasp who was hinted to still be alive in the first film.
Now Sharon Stone has revealed a little hint about her character, but rather than feeding into our theories, it’s actually a little confusing. But it doesn’t completely debunk everyone’s guesses either. Find out more about the Sharon Stone Marvel role after the jump. Read More »
Due to the ageism that exists for female actresses in Hollywood, we haven’t seen much of Sharon Stone in the more popular movies of the past decade. In the past 10 years she’s had parts in Alpha Dog, Bobby, Lovelace, Fading Gigolo and that awful Basic Instinct sequel in 2006. Stone even starred in her own series called Agent X on TNT in 2015, which has since been canceled. However, a career boost might be in her future after a certain comic book movie studio gives her a role.
While appearing as a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden (via local news affiliate WBT, brought to our attention by ComingSoon.net), the Basic Instinct star revealed that she will have a role in an upcoming Marvel Studios movie. And the way she worded this revelation makes us think that it will be for the upcoming sequel Ant-Man and The Wasp. Find out more below. Read More »
Susan Sarandon is starring in not one but two movies about mothers and daughters this spring. Since The Meddler is about more than just being a mom — and because we don’t see enough movies about being a mom — getting two of them the same time of year, both starring Sarandon, isn’t such a bad thing. The trailer for the other one, Mothers and Daughters, has just been released, and you can watch it below.

You should all be watching American Crime Story: The People v OJ Simpson. Based on the high ratings, a lot of you are watching the FX drama, but if you’re not, you should check out the very addictive, fun and thoughtful drama, which features a great supporting performance from John Travolta. He goes big in the series, showing a whole new side of himself.
Travolta also appears a little different in Life on the Line, an upcoming drama starring the actor, Kate Bosworth, and Sharon Stone. Watch the Life on the Line trailer below.

Tommy Wiseau‘s infamous cult favorite The Room features a no-name cast of first-time actors, starting with Tommy Wiseau himself — the director / writer / producer cast also himself as the lead, despite a total lack of professional experience on every single one of those fronts. James Franco‘s making-of movie about The Room, on the other hand, is turning out to be quite the star-studded affair.
The latest notable name to sign on for The Disaster Artist is Sharon Stone, who’ll star alongside Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, and many more in the film. Find out who she’s playing after the jump. Read More »
Early on in The Graduate, there’s that iconic moment. Ben Braddock, a recent college grad, is talking with the beautiful older family friend Mrs. Robinson. Ben says, “Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me.” It’s iconic thanks to director Mike Nichols’ choice of angle, the delivery of the line by Dustin Hoffman, and the way that one sentence sets the entire story into motion.
At Jason Reitman‘s final live read of the season, actor Jay Baruchel played the role of Ben Braddock. When he got to that line, delivered next to his Mrs. Robinson, Sharon Stone, the 32-year-old actor broke character, cocked his right arm on his side and whispered, “Yes!” He was excited, not just because he nailed the legendary line, but maybe he got the feeling what was to follow was going to go very well. Reitman’s casting of Baruchel as the nervous, unsure, yet charming and likable Ben couldn’t have been more perfect. The same could also be said for Sharon Stone, whose Mrs. Robinson was sexy, confident and cool.
Though both actors were merely sitting in chairs, reading lines of dialogue, their body language created an electric chemistry that turned the combination of a great cast and a flawless script into a memorable event. Below, read more details about the Film Independent at LACMA Live Read of The Graduate. Read More »
Is it weird to watch Woody Allen working as a self-styled pimp, given his own, er, unusual sexual history? Maybe so, and perhaps that just makes this new trailer for John Turturro‘s film Fading Gigolo more, er, striking. I keep waiting for the whole thing to be revealed as an extended dream sequence, given that the plot has the Normal Guy played by Turturro turning into a $1000-per night gigolo thanks to the efforts of his pal, played by Allen. We’re given an intro via two gorgeous women (Sharon Stone and Sofía Vergara) who want a threesome, with Vergara even offering up that “a woman is meant to be looked at.” Seriously.
Lest you think this is all just a self-serving wish-fulfillment act from Turturro, note that The Playlist called the film “odd, uneven and yet engaging” after its premiere at TIFF, and noted that the best parts of the picture turn up via Turturro’s relationship with a widow played by Vanessa Paradis. That makes it sound like some reality does tap the main character on the shoulder sooner or later, which may be good to know. in the meantime, take in the new trailer below. Read More »

Amanda Seyfried‘s covered more genres in the few of years than some actors do in their entire careers. She’s done an indie drama (The End of Love), a thriller (Gone), a musical (Les Misérables), a romcom (The Big Wedding), a kids’ cartoon (Epic), and now, she’s gonna do porn. Er, that is, a movie about porn.
Jeffrey Friedman and Rob Epstein‘s Lovelace chronicles the story of Linda Boreman, who became an international sensation after changing her name to Linda Lovelace and starring in the crossover porn hit Deep Throat.
